Abide Together: Reflections on Romans 11
In Romans 11 Paul reminds the Church at Rome that God has not rejected the people of Israel. Instead, they have rejected his way of salvation, but there is a remnant that will come to Him by HIS Grace through faith in Jesus. Israel’s rejection of God’s way of salvation has led to the Gentiles coming to faith in Jesus, which will be a cause to make Israel jealous. Paul says that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. Once this happens, there will be a host of Israelites that will come to faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord. God’s Grace is amazing to which Paul responds with “Oh, the depths of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” Lord, you alone deserve Glory for Your work of salvation in all the nations and in me. To You be the glory forever. Amen.
